Actually, the fourth match of the tournament was being played between Desert Vipers and Sharjah Warriors. Sheldon Cottrell of Desert Vipers comes in for the 5th over of the Sharjah Warriors innings. He took the first 4 balls tight and spent only one run, but the 5th ball left his hand and started towards the third slip about 6 feet away from the crease. On this, batsman Tom Colmar Codmar took a dashing shot while running and sent the ball outside the boundary line for 4 runs.
As soon as the ball crossed the boundary after a bounce, Sehwag said in his own style – I wish! That we get such gifts in our time too. However, the batsman did not get 4 runs here. In fact, as per Rule 21.8 of the MCC, if the batsman has to leave the pitch to play the ball, he will be given a no-ball and then a dead ball. That is, one run will be given in the form of a no-ball, but runs scored with the bat will not be given. Something similar happened here as well.
Talking about the match, Sharjah had scored 145 runs for 5 wickets. For him, Joy Denly scored an unbeaten 36 and Mohammad Nabi scored an unbeaten 34. In reply, Desert Vipers scored 148 runs for the loss of 3 wickets and won. For him, Alex Hales scored an unbeaten 83 off 52 balls while Sam Billings hit 49 off 38 balls. The match was played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
